Cherchez la Femme
Valerie Galloway's passion for all things Post-War Parisian—from French New Wave cinema to glamorous shots of her mother and her aunt—give her oeuvre a certain jeu d'esprit that is simply magnifique! Her pert and utterly posh characters exhibit the artist's ardor for costume and pattern and allow her to interpret and recapture her most frequented flicks as well as moments from her childhood.
This high-quality giclee print of Valerie's original watercolor painting depicts a blushing, belle femme emerging from a rouge-flecked frock represented by dusky plumes of paint. Atop her elegant crown, the artist has whipped up a mousse-like bouffant of curls, the grandeur of which would make the art lover, Francophile, and maybe even Marie Antoinette herself utter "Oo la la!" Printed on archival, Museo Portfolio Rag. Hand-signed and dated by the artist. Made in Arizona.
